Fire Hazard Status Update/Full Shutdown

We’re once again on a total shutdown for high risk activities. Please be cautious with all activities. If you’re unsure if you should do something, then you should probably wait until we have more moisture.
Thanks, Chad

Fire Hazard Status Update/Full Shutdown

We hit our third Danger Class 5 total and are now on a full shutdown for high risk activities. To be clear, as there have been many questions around it all. Yes, you can mow your lawn, operate your firewood splitter, weedeater etc. so long as you’re not creating any sparks. Even excavators can dig in the dirt. However the handling of logs, stumps, woody debris etc is a no no. Please feel free to ask for clarification should you be uncertain if your activities are a yeah or nay. Here’s hoping for another safe month of summer. Chad 🇹🇩
